Drop Line

Drop Line lifts guests more than 20 stories above Dollywood’s Timber Canyon. As it ascends, the ride’s gondola slowly spins around the tower, providing guests with a bird’s eye view of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Guests shouldn’t get too comfortable with the commanding vantage point they find high above the ground, however. In an instant, Drop Line plummets them back to the ground in a thrilling rush of excitement.

During the Spring and Fall season, the social behavior of bees and wasp changes causing them to swarm our tall attractions.

Flying insects are a natural part of the Great Smoky Mountains in the Spring and Fall. During the warmest part of the day, there are bees and wasps flying around the top of this attraction. We encourage each guest to use discretion when deciding to ride.
